Lil Keed complained to his friends and family he was suffering from serious stomach pain in the days leading up to his death … with things getting so bad he had to go to the hospital.

Multiple sources close to Keed tell us … the YSL label rapper had his battles over the years with alcohol and drugs, but had been clean and sober of late. We’re told last week he began experiencing severe stomach pain and went to an L.A. hospital to get checked out.

From there, our sources say things got worse, and Keed’s organs — his liver and kidneys — started failing … leading to his death.

As we reported, news of his death shocked the hip hop world over the weekend when his brother, Lil Gotit, posted, “Can’t believe I seened u die today bro I did all my cries I know what u want me to do and that’s go hard for Mama Daddy Our Brothers Naychur and Whiteboy.”

While Keed is a YSL rapper, he was not named in the recent indictment with Young Thug and Gunna.

The Los Angeles County Coroner’s office is expected to do an autopsy this week.

Keed was only 24.

Aside from his brother, the rapper, who was affiliated with Young Thug’s Young Stoner Life record label, is also survived by his young daughter, NayChur.

Lil Keed’s death comes just days after 28 people associated with the Young Slime Life gang — including Young Thug — were hit with charges relating to gang involvement and conspiracy to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.

While the rapper was part of Young Stoner Life Records, he was not named in the sweeping indictment. It’s also worth pointing out that Lil Keed had advocated for those caught up in the legal matter, posting that YSL was a “lifestyle” instead of a criminal gang.

With the close timing of these two incidents, many people couldn’t help but point out the “eerie” nature of the situation.

Many have reminisced on Keed’s close relationship with Young Thug, who discovered the 24-year-old rapper back in 2018.

“He’s just a great person at heart. He’s real pure-hearted. He teaches you stuff. He gives you game. He helps his people. That’s why I love him so much. Every time we’re with him is a great time,” Lil Keed said of Young Thug back in 2020.

We send our condolences to Lil Keed’s loved ones and the YSL family at this time.
